Aug. 29 (UPI) -- A match between John Cena and Roman Reigns was made official Monday on Raw as two of WWE's biggest stars took part in a war of words.
Cena met Reigns in the ring for a contract signing to make their mega match a reality at No Mercy, but not before sparks began to fly on the microphone.
"You're not as big of a deal as you think you are," The Big Dog said of the 16-time heavyweight champion. "I've done something you'll never do, I retired The Undertaker at WrestleMania. So maybe its not that I don't wanna fight you, maybe I just don't need to."
"They go back and fourth with you because when they look at you, they see what I see," Cena said about the crowd's reaction to Reigns. "A cheap ass, corporately created, John Cena bootleg!"
The pair then signed the contract before they were forced into a Tag Team Match together against Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in which they won using an Attitude Adjustment and Spear.
Cena meets Reigns at No Mercy on Sept. 24.
A competitive bout, Bliss turned things around after being put through the Bank Statement and was able to plant The Boss with a DDT for the three count.
As The Goddess celebrated in the ring, she was joined by Nia Jax who attacked Banks and held up Bliss on her shoulders. Soon, however, Jax's smiling expression changed as she slammed Bliss down hard to the mat and posed with the Women's Championship herself, signaling that she was next in line to challenge for the title.
Also on Raw, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar alongside his advocate Paul Heyman, addressed how he was attacked by Braun Strowman last week. In a rare moment, Lesnar grabbed the microphone from Heyman and addressed The Monster Among Men himself.
"Suplex city [expletive]," The Beast said, summing up his plans for Strowman at No Mercy.
Other highlights included Jeff Hardy winning a Battle Royal to become the No.1 contender to The Miz's Intercontinental Championship; Enzo Amore defeating Noam Dar; Cesaro defeating Raw Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins; Raw Tag Team Champion Dean Ambrose defeating Sheamus; Emma defeating Mickie James; and Southpaw Regional Wrestling's "Impressive" Pelvis Wesley confronting Elias.
